“From Your Lips To God’s Ear”
The title today is I believe a Jewish expression though many others of us have used it as a sort of “Amen” “That’s Right” comment. I have told this little story before but then my Dad taught me by example that good stories get even better with the telling and retelling. At a particularly low point in my life I was listening quite hard for an encouraging word and it came over the radio as I was at the kitchen sink washing dishes. It was in the lyrics of an already old at the time Beach Boys song. The words that I heard and knew instantly were for me were: “Don’t worry, Baby, everything will turn out all right.”
Admittedly sometimes it does not seem so but it is true, straight from the Divine heart to it’s counterpart in you. The word “Baby” always gets my attention for it is my favorite pet name for myself. I even have Siri on my iPhone programmed to call me Baby. “I will check that out for you, Baby.” One of my most favorite songs sung by my beloved and dearly departed daughter Emily that I refer to as “The Baby Song” has one verse saying, “I love the way you call me Baby.” After her death I sung it with her recording and call it now A Duet With My Baby.
Duet With My Baby
No Matter What, another of my favorite songs has a similar statement of what thoughts we should hold in our hearts and minds in order not not lose our peace no matter what situation or fear arises.
No matter what they tell you
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach you
What you believe is true
And I will keep you safe and strong
And sheltered from the storm
No matter where it’s barren
A dream is being born
Writer(s): Jim Steinman, Andrew Lloyd Webber
No Matter What
So, Baby, keep your eye on the prize which is You, your higher best self, and hear that encouraging word in every breeze, every word, every song: “Don’t worry, Baby, everything will turn out alright.” No matter what.
